Designed taking inspiration from nearby villages, Samode Safari Lodge is a richly furnished safari lodge that blends in seamlessly with adjacent Bandhavgarh National Park. It’s raised the bar for luxury wildlife tourism in India, which traditionally has fallen behind Africa. With just 12 private villas, Samode Safari Lodge is intimate, spoiling and atmospheric; everything you want from luxury wilderness accommodation. The independent villas, that boast private verandas, sit amongst luminous trees and scrubland. They are spacious, indulgent and are decorated in a safari style with eclectic Indian touches. We love the enormous showers, the deep baths and the comfortable beds. What makes this place even more special is the well trained naturalists, the food and the romantic ambience.
